"Mom and Loving it!" teams up with Sweet Sleep!

We’re excited about teaming up with two inspiring women who are out to change the world, one mom at a time! Check out these awesome moms who have committed to do more than simply survive motherhood, they want to enjoy it!

“Mom and Loving It!” is all about providing hope for families by encouraging them and equipping moms. The idea started with two sisters, Laurie Lovejoy Hilliard and Sharon Lovejoy Autry, who wanted to share the hope of Christ with moms who have shared their struggles.

These two sisters and their families spent four years touring 40 states, promoting their books and music, but finally settled down in North Texas. Soon they will hit the road again to share the message of Christ’s hope with moms across the country. As they speak at different conferences and events, they will also be sharing about how to impact orphans around the world through the work of Sweet Sleep.

The women of “Mom and Loving It!” will be giving Build-A-Bed coin collection boxes to each family they meet, encouraging them to raise money to build beds for orphans. They will also be encouraging families to become “bedheads” and give $30 each month to provide beds, bedding and Bibles for orphans.

To find out more about the work of “Mom and Loving It!” visit momandlovingit.org. To bring this duo to your city, visit their contact page.
